If you use cotton balls, these little buds are the perfect reusable replacement! Small and compact, they measure approximately 1-3/4" across, fitting nicely between your thumb and fingers. Never one to throw anything away, I have crocheted each one by hand using new 100% cotton yarn scraps. They can be used over and over again, getting softer and fluffier when they are washed. They won't get all scrunched up like cotton balls, and they're softer than those other balls that aren't even made of cotton.
With this listing you will receive 25 assorted buds in a variety of colors. I'll also include a mesh bag** to wash them in so they won't disappear to that mystery place your socks always end up going to.
Easy care machine wash and dry. Because they are 100% cotton, they may shrink a bit, and they will be fluffier when they come out of the dryer. You can hand wash and dry flat if you prefer. Fabric softener may reduce their absorbability. I wash mine in hot water with my towels.
Please be aware that chlorine bleach and benzoil peroxide products may fade the colors. They may not look as bright and colorful, but this will not affect their functionality. Use of these or similar products may reduce their usable life a bit.
Because these are made from scraps, the photos are a representation of the colors you may receive. I have tons of yarn scraps I will be using to make more of these little guys, so if you are looking for a particular colorway, send me a message and I'll see what I have available.
As with most yarns, there can appear slight differences in the color and texture of yarns of the same color or type. While I try to purchase as much yarn in the same dye lot and can send all buds of the same color if requested, there may be some very slight difference in shading and texture.
** One mesh bag included per shipment. If you'd like more bags, let me know. Limit 1 mesh bag per set of 25 buds.
I now accept Paypal, money orders and RME (Revolution Money Exchange) payments. If you wish to use RME, check "other" as your preferred form of payment and I will send you an invoice and request for payment from RME.
